The Mankato Sports Commission is excited to announce the inaugural Regional Awards Banquet for 2019.
“The Mankato Sports Commission Regional Awards are designed to recognize and celebrate outstanding athletes of all ages, sports teams, organizations and volunteers in the local sport and recreation community,” said Joy Leafblad, Mankato Sports Commission director.
This event was introduced by Jeff Annis, a Sports Commissioner, and was quickly approved by the entire Commission. Since then, a few key Commissioners have dedicated their time to develop the event alongside staff.
The Mankato Sports Commission Regional Awards nomination period is now open through July 2019. Nominees from within a 20-mile radius of Greater Mankato are eligible.
To see the full eligibility criteria, the selection process, and nomination timeline can be found online at mktosports.com/regionalawards.
Regional Awards recipients will be honored at a banquet scheduled for September 23, 2019 at the Verizon Center Banquet Hall.
Regional Awards sponsorship opportunities are being developed. Inquire with Mankato Sports Commission Director Joy Leafblad with interest. Her email email@example.com or phone number is 507-385-6663.
